India hasn’t lost a T20I bilateral series since 2021, which was 12 series back when it toured Sri Lanka.
For West Indies, it is yet another opportunity to win back-to-back T20I series, and also beat India for the first time in a series since 2016.
- August 13, 2023 19:21Weather update
As far as weather is concerned, there is no real threat of rain. The conditions are hot and sky is clear to play. There is a rain forecast during the day, but not as of now.
- August 13, 2023 19:17Pitch conditions
Yesterday, it was a batting paradise but it did offer something to the spinners. West Indies made a mistake of playing only one front-line spinner in Akeal Hosein. There is a good chance, Roston Chase might get to play today in place of Odean Smith, who was expensive with his gentle medium pace.
Today’s match will be played on the same strip.
